How is peace research perceived in different places around the world? Do the perceptions remain the same when we move from a research environment in the global north to another in the south? If there is variation, what is the reason behind it? In this episode, Pedro Valenzuela -Professor of International Relations at the Javeriana University- and Angela Muvumba Sellström -Senior Researcher at the Nordic Africa Institute and affiliated to Uppsala University’s Department of Peace and Conflict Research- talk about how peace research is viewed in the global south. They highlight the value of global partnerships and collaborations shaping the perceptions on this particular research field. Valenzuela and Sellström also discuss how researchers, practitioners, and policymakers can help create a fertile climate for peace by participating in outreach programs.
